Margery McBain
Managing Director

With more than 25 years’ experience in HR, Margery is a true industry leader in Scotland. Yet having pursued food science at first, it wasn’t always her ambition. Instead, she found her passion for Human Resources in her first role, with John Lewis in a graduate trainee programme. A series of HR positions in the retail sector followed, before she moved in consultancy work and, in 2006, established Gravitate.

As a hands-on owner and Managing Director, Margery plays an active role in the day-to-day delivery of our services – spending just as much time directly supporting our clients as she does leading the team.

Not content with leading a successful business, she’s also done well at the head of a thriving family – having raised three kids. Having discovered a real passion for fitness, she has a triathlon under her belt, and has just returned from scaling Machu Picchu!

I founded Gravitate to work in a particular way – really listening to our clients and going out of our way to understand their needs. The result is something I’m very proud of: a bespoke, reliable service that couldn’t be further from the standard solutions some others provide.
